Course: ARHY 331 Art History - Impressionism and Post-Impressionism
[satisfies Core Theme Area: Creative Arts]
This course will focus on the works of the French Impressionists and the Post-Impressionists. By studying the art of Manet, Monet, Cezanne, and other great masters of the period, students will explore how the artists of the late 19th century broke free from traditional rules and expectations and began the changes in style, technique and subject matter that characterize Modern Art.
Paris, the artistic center of that time, still teems with the culture and charm that inspired the artists of the period. From great museums like the Louvre and the Musée d'Orsay to intimate collections like the Rodin Museum, from the artistic neighborhoods of Montmartre and the Left Bank---Paris offers innumerable treasures for students of art history.
